Albion star Yves Bissouma is closing on a move to Tottenham.

Talks remain ongoing but the Mali midfielder is expected to head to north London.

The Argus understands the transfer fee involved would be "much higher" than the £25 million initially reported.

Bissouma has a year left on his contract with the Seagulls and has been speculatively linked with several clubs.

The move would give him a chance to test himself in the Champions League.
